The Aston Martin V8 Vantage N430 is an unexpectedly sporty twist when compared to the standard fare. 

The special edition Aston Martin is inspired by the V8 Vantage, of course, but packs a few tricks that are all its own. It will be publicly viewed for the first time in Geneva when the show opens for the press preview on March 4th, 2014. The show opens to the public on March 6th…not that I am counting down the hours or anything.

The name was not copied from Ferrari’s famous F430, but from the number of horses it has in its own stable. The Aston Martin Vantage V8 N430 pays homage to the successful N-badge vehicles and the brilliant colors are an obvious nod to racing successes and the blistering Nurburgring.

In the cabin

Inside the Vantage N430 are Kevlar racing style bucket seats and plenty of carbon fiber accents. The curb appeal is finished off with forged alloy wheels. The seats are stitched with the N430 logo with small pops of color to tie it to the exterior.
